From Requirements to a RESTful Web Service: Engineering Content Oriented Web Services with REST

Abstract

This chapter presents an approach for proceeding from a set of requirements to an implemented RESTful Web service for content oriented systems. The requirements are captured into a simple domain model and then refined into a resource model. The resource model re-organizes the domain concepts into addressable entities: resources and interconnecting links, hypermedia representations, URIs and default HTTP operations and status codes. The approach has emerged from the experiences gained during developing RESTful Web services at Nokia Research Center.
